Breast Imaging Offers Free Mammograms in October
September 10, 2012
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Highland Breast Imaging – in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester and Cancer Services Program of Monroe County – will be offering free mammograms to women 40 and older who are uninsured or underinsured. The event is from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 13 at Highland Breast Imaging, 500 Red Creek Drive, Suite 130. Appointments are required and can be made at (585) 487-3305 or (585) 487-3304.
For the past eight years, Highland Breast Imaging has been offering free mammograms to women who do not have insurance or whose insurance does not cover breast cancer screenings. Hundreds of women have been screened for breast cancer as a result.
At the October event, Reiki practitioners and a nail technician will be on hand for Reiki sessions and mini-manicures. Parking is free and refreshments will be provided.
Women who cannot make the screening are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a different day.
